Hello, all! Last few days have been a whirlwind of busy-ness and fatigue. (I say busy-ness instead of business, because there was nothing business-y about it. Yes, I'm feeling like butchering my native--and only--language today.) Fun, but not fun, because I've been separated from my preciousssss, the internet and the people on it. :D

But now I must fangirl over the premiere of Supernatural Season 8. This is special to me in so many ways, because for the first time, I'm caught up on a TV series just as it's actually, factually happening. That is an awesome feeling, minus the suspense rendered by commercials and waiting an entire week for the next episode. I'm used to blazing through 2 to 4 episodes a day.

Without dropping too many spoilers, let's just say I really enjoyed the episode, but felt it just a tad off. Like they had to amble through a set-up of the premise that really felt like nothing had happened, and the good stuff was still to come. Best part of the episode was, by far, our boys being reunited for the bajillionth time. That will never, ever get old.

And neither will this GIF. :D

. . . that you walk across your dark bedroom to turn off your CD player, only to see a silhouette of a spider on the INSIDE of the LED screen?

Well, odds or no odds, I just did. Usually, I would find that cool instead of creepy--but in this instance, this spider naturally just HAD to look like a tiny brown recluse. (And if baby spiders are anything like baby snakes when it comes to not knowing when to stop spewing venom . . . yikes.)

My poor CD player is going to have to spend the night outside. Hopefully, nothing else will crawl inside after the spider decides to leave.

And the images of brown recluses (sprinkled with horrifically unattended brown recluse bites) that I looked at are certainly not helping me feel like going to sleep. (Ironically, I was having a great night before this. Finally decided that it would be cheaper to buy separate DVD and Blu-ray copies of The Hunger Games and watched the Blu-Ray. Ahhhhhh.)

Apparently, retailers are assuming that next to nobody wants to buy a copy of The Hunger Games in a set with BOTH DVD and Blu-ray. The only places I've found that carry that are Best Buy for an affordable price (which is out already, due to low stock in the first place) and Amazon for a ridiculous price. I really don't want to have to spend close to sixty bucks just so I can have both. :(

I've been wanting to whip out a new layout to match the banner above for a long, long time, but I hadn't worked up the gumption. Until now. I've tweaked this layout a bit, and I'm still not sure if I'm done tweaking yet or not. (The layout, I mean. Saying "tweaking" always feels wrong, somehow, no matter what the context. LOL.) I'll probably grow lazy and leave this as is. We'll see.

All I know right now is, my sleep pattern for the last few days has been ridiculously messed up (always staying up late, sometimes waking up early, sometimes waking up really late, sometimes taking long naps--even though I NEVER take naps). So I'm in a weird mood, and I can't decide if I feel more like this:

Or this:

I . . . think I'll just get some rest. Night all! Namarie!

Apparently, the latest insult against dead literary giants that can't defend their own works anymore is. . . revamping classics so they read like Fifty Shades of Grey.

Yeah, you read that right.

And I thought Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was infuriating. That's got NOTHING on this. I'm not sure whether to shoot myself or go on a killing spree.


Or just stick to fanfiction, at the very least. Do NOT tamper with the original work, written in blood and sweat and tears, of writers to whom you can't even begin to compare. Show some respect, even if you have no restraint or dignity.

Sorry if you can't hear me over my screams of "SACRILEGE!" Jane Austen is my hero, and has been for years, and I can't stand it when people trample her work because they're too stupid or too lazy to appreciate its wit and subtlety. I've just been reading a compiled work of her letters, and feeling more in awe of her than ever.

I'm going to go listen to some soothing music. Or something. Something to make me feel better, because I care too much.

To those of you all excited about the beginning of 2012: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

To those of you feeling a little jet-lagged by the sudden ending of 2011: Know the feeling. Maybe we'll all get better at getting used to how quickly time flies next year.

I'm feeling just the slightest bit depressed, because I would have liked to have more to speak for at the end of this year; but that's life.

And now I'm going to get wordy, like a true wannabe-novelist . . . )
